Taieri Mouth

Taieri Mouth, Dunedin

When I tell people about the Inn Town Campground, I often get asked, “What inspired you to build this place?” In response, I tell them about how my husband Dan and I spent over five years living in New Zealand— our two sons were born there — and we spent months-on-end traveling around with our small children in a Toyota Hiace van. Our favorite nights were those spent at classic Kiwi holiday parks, which offered close access to town, family-friendly amenities like playgrounds and family bathrooms, and a mix of different camping accommodations. We made friends in those places and experienced the local culture. That is where the seed for the Inn Town Campground was first planted.

Our family recently got the opportunity to return to New Zealand. The country still holds a unique place in our hearts. Over the years we took our honeymoon in New Zealand, Dan went to grad school at the University of Otago in Dunedin and we got the chance to live in the country and really get to know the Kiwi culture. So for us any opportunity we have to return is special.
